The latest controversy erupted after Trump took to Twitter in response to an SNL skit aired over the weekend, which imagined a world if Hillary Clinton would have won the 2016 presidential election in a riff of the 1946 Christmas classic It's A Wonderful Life entitled "It's A Wonderful Trump".
The real Donald Trump must not have enjoyed it too much, though, because on Sunday morning he tweeted his disdain for the show (which he has twice been host to prior to his presidency), calling it a "Democrat spin machine" that "defame [s] and belittle [s]" him.
He even suggested that the nature of their content "should be tested in courts", in the latest of his threats to take legal action against media outlets.
Tom Boggioni is a senior editor at Raw Story.
"It's actually not news, but go on", Camerota said in response to Trump's tweet, which put Berman in a feigned shock: "It's not news?!"
"I'll see you tomorrow at the opening of Trump Tower Moscow", Cohen gleefully blurts out before exiting.
Cohen replied to Trump's Twitter attacks in a speech given during his sentencing.
The actor said the cast could "hear protests during our table read" as Trump's detractors shouted "No Trump!" outside.
What else would be different in a non-Trump administration, according to "SNL"?
Trump has hosted the show twice, most recently in 2015, after he became a leading candidate in the last presidential race.
Earlier this year, he tweeted of "SNL" and Baldwin: "Alec Baldwin, whose dying mediocre career was saved by his awful impersonation of me on 'SNL, ' now says playing me was agony".
As The Week reported, USA courts hold a high standard for defamation, and freedom of expression under the First Amendment broadly allows criticism of anyone, leaders included.
It's not clear why the president felt that a stimulation indicate like "Saturday Night Live" established "news inclusion" or what legitimate grounds he would need to square systems from acting since Ronald Reagan's FCC in 1987 wiped out the reasonableness teaching that expected systems to give adjusted inclusion of political issues.
